From Vojvodina, with lard.
There is a small town, Barberton OH, I read about this morning that’s located near Akron. This small town’s claim to fame is they are the ‘fried chicken capital of the world’. I imagine there are probably a half dozen or so other places that bill themselves as such, but be that as it may, this community has managed to draw visitors from afar to sample their Serbian style fried chicken. Since it’s only about an hour south of Cleveland (we make periodic trips there to go to the clinic) I was toying with the idea of making a gastronomic pilgrimage to try one of their four famous chicken restaurants.
Have you ever intentionally travelled somewhere – at least in part – to eat some particular kind of food that location is known for? Is there a town, for instance, that can lay claim to the ‘chili destination of the world’ or ‘barbecue capital of the world’? Where would you be willing to make a gastronomic pilgrimage?
